    Gluhwein is a German/Austrian winter-holiday drink that most tourists know as an after-ski drink. After you come in out of the snow, it is supposed to make you glow with warmth again. Watch it: since you drink this wine warm, the alcohol goes to your head extra quick!

    Ingredients
    Serves: 6 

    • 3/4 cup water
    • 3/4 cup white sugar
    • 1 cinnamon stick
    • 1 orange
    • 10 whole cloves
    • 750ml bottle red wine

    Directions
    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. In a saucepan, combine the water, sugar and cinnamon stick. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer.
    2. Cut the orange in half, and squeeze the juice into the simmering water. Push the cloves into the outside of the orange peel, and place peel in the simmering water. Continue simmering for 30 minutes, until thick and syrupy.
    3. Pour in the wine, and heat until steaming but not simmering. Remove the clove-studded orange halves. Serve hot in mugs or glasses that have been preheated in warm water (cold glasses will break).

    Really good and quick & easy. I made the base to take to Mid Winter Dinner and added the wine at the end.  -  17 Jul 2015

    As someone who lives in Germany, this is the biggest holiday hit you can find! It is available everywhere in towns and the popular christmas markets and this is exactly how to make it. Although, I wouldn't add the water, but instead substitute orange juice to give it more of a zest. Drink it while it's hot!  -  15 Oct 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
